Team CBC Weekly Update - April 30

Posted: Apr 30, 2013 3:16 PM ET Last Updated: Apr 30, 2013 3:16 PM ET
Less than 3 weeks left until the big weekend. Can you believe it? I hope you're all getting ready to giv'er all you've got!

Run/Walk - Thursday, May 2, 6 p.m.

This week we're going to do something similar to the route we did at last week's run/walk. In addition to conquering Citadel Hill, we plan to do laps of the hill before heading back down to the streets. Hope you can join us!

Please note, since many of us are tapering off the week leading up to the Blue Nose Marathon, we plan to meet for a walk only on Thursday, May 16. This means after this week, we only have one more full-on group run/walk.

Help Build Shoe Mountain

Imagine going for a run with no shoes on your feet. For some Nova Scotians, shoes are a luxury, not a necessity. Please help us help our fellow Nova Scotians in need.

Starting May 8, you can bring a pair of gently used running shoes to the CBC Radio building lobby on Sackville and South Park Streets. You will then be given a ballot and entered to win a Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon/CBC prize package.

You can also bring shoes to the expo/kit pick-up at the WTCC during race weekend. Shoes collected at all locations will be distributed free-of-charge to local community members in need. Please be sure the shoes you are donating are gently used and are intact (insoles).
Help us build Shoe Mountain; one pair at a time.
Registration Information

If you aren't a recipient of one of the free CBC registrations, you must register by Tuesday April 30, 2013 at midnight. Yes folks, that's tonight! This will ensure you are registered before the final early bird pricing is over.

Also, this is a gentle reminder that we still need registration information from a few team members. Please check your emails and get back to us as soon as possible if you already haven't.
